Starbucks Retribution for Unionizing Efforts: Cutting Hours
Posted On: Mar 24, 2023
Mar. 24, 2023 | UNION BUSTING | Starbucks has reached yet another new low: cutting the hours of workers in what could be considered retribution for their efforts to unionize. On a recent cold morning, Starbucks workers stood outside stores across America handing out a flyer, “Why Is My Order TAKING SO LONG?” which points out that the company is cutting hours and thus, it takes longer for those fewer baristas to get your order ready. “Working at Starbucks, I have seen firsthand how the company has neglected the rights of its workers. I’ve experienced understaffing, a lack of store management, witnessed discrimination, and was exposed to an unhealthy and unsafe work environment,” said Katie McCoy, an ex-Starbucks worker in Marysville, Wash., fired for her union organizing efforts at her store.
